80 Gallon Build

Hey guys just bought a new to me 80 gallon that will be my only tank all the tanks i have is just too much with my new baby. It is going to be my community tank (cardinals, sepea, glowlights, ect...)

So I have 2-200 watt heaters this should do hopefully two will take the load better then just one

I have 2 40gallon power filters

I am using red and black gravel i would go sand but i HATE vacuming it and I had one tank with red and black mixed gravel that i got a lot of compliments on.

open to ideas on live plants i have 2 T5 lights 1 white 1 blue

not going with any tacky decorations just some large driftwood pieces

Stocking

only thing set in stone is
12 cardianls
12 glowlights
6 serpae
2 angels

open to ideas for live plants and more stocking ideas i would like to stick with small scholling fish tetras barbs danios ect...

Please give your thoughts TANK YOU!

You should keep one of your old tanks as a QT just saying lol. For fish, I like orange laser cories, starlight bristlenose plecos, and Bolivian rams... But rainbow sharks are beast too! Not sure how the shark would do with the angels though. Lol... Maybe not.

I recommend you to upgrade to a good canister filter... I don't know if the two 40G will make the trick.
I like the following:
Rena Xp4
Fluval

Ok so I got the rest of my gravel and just to be safe I resealed my tank just to be sure

Question when you redo your seals I like it clean looking and not massive gobs like the factory does so I tape off the whole tank so my lines are clean and then I wet my finger and drag it through to smooth it any problems with this?
